We’re just weeks away from the official start of summer and Taco Bell is ready to help us through the hottest days with a new drink addition to its menu. It’s called the Mtn Dew Baja Blast Colada Freeze and it combines everything you love about Taco Bell’s signature Baja Blast Freeze drink with everything you love about piña coladas. Everything but the booze, of course.

The new summer-inspired beverage is essentially Taco Bell’s signature Baja Blast Freeze blended with sweet tropical cream. You can find it on Taco Bell menus nationwide.

Normally, you can order a Baja Blast Colada Freeze for $2.39 or size up to a large for $2.59. However, you can snag one for only $1 during Taco Bell’s Happier Hour from 2 pm to 5 pm at participating locations.
